The deafening roar of Twilight lovers around the country celebrating the midnight premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at the end of this month will surely leave us all quivering in our boots.
In the meantime, Team Edward/Jacob fans can entertain themselves by watching two new TV spots for Eclipse and a featurette on one of the film’s new vampire characters.
Bella (Kristen Stewart) has a lot on her mind in the latest chapter in the Twilight series. She not only has to choose between studly Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and pallid Edward (Robert Pattinson), thwart a vengeance plot orchestrated by the evil vampire, Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) but she also faces – gasp! – her impending graduation from high school.
Honestly, I recall having a pretty severe case of Senioritis back when I was Bella’s age, and that’s WITHOUT the threat of an approaching army of super vampires to distract me from my studies. I suppose Miss Swan is just really committed in that sense. ;)
Onward to the new TV spots:
These new advertisements are more in the vein of the last trailer for Eclipse as they continue to emphasize the darker atmosphere and more action-driven nature of this new Twilight venture. Devoted fans can take comfort in the most recent clips from the film, as they demonstrate that there will still be plenty of teenage angst and romantic drama as well.
We also have a new Eclipse featurette on Bree Tanner (Jodelle Ferland), a young girl who still yearns to be decent, even after she is transformed into a destructive super vamp. Here’s hoping her experience is less traumatizing than that of another character played by Ferland – the imaginative Jeliza-Rose in director Terry Gilliam’s nightmare-inducing film, Tideland.
You can check out the clip below:
So what do you Twilight fans think? Excited as ever? Will any of you non-believers be making a trip to your local cinemaplex to see if Eclipse is your kind of vampire movie? Sound off in the comments section below.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will arrive in regular and IMAX theaters in the U.S. on June 30th, 2010.
